Serialized Storytelling and Soap Opera - PCA 2020

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 4:20pm
Popular Culture Association Conference - April 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

Soap Operas, a mainstay of popular culture in the US and internationally, are grounded in the serialized nature of their storytelling. While many traditional and long-running network soap operas have declined in viewership or left the airwaves in recent years, serialized storytelling is alive and well in everything from reality television to HBO franchises to primetime and cable series. Video game franchises, webisodes, sports and sports entertainment and advertising campaigns and now even politics and political journalism have harnessed the power and popularity of the serialized form to build and sustain audiences in our increasingly fractured media landscape.

We are most interested in thinking about how ruins might be figured not only as the ending of something, but also as the beginning of something else.

And on the Pedestal, these words appear: My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; Look on my Works ye Mighty and despair! Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away.

ENGLISH and englishes: Culture, Power, Politics in a Neo-liberalist Regime

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 2:26am
Department of English, Bankura University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 8, 2019

The destiny of English / englishes was perhaps foreshadowed long back in 1975 by George Steiner in his Presidential Address to the English Association in London: “…the linguistic centre of English has shifted”. This shifting terrain came to be further reified in terms of expansive movements beyond the borders of traditionally recognised territories.

With the exhaustion of postcolonial models, it is time we tried to break free of conventional straitjackets. In a neo-liberalist world order, that almost runs co-extensive with the free market economy and transnational political diplomacy, cultural disciplinary models are establishing an innovative paradigm shift.

I Intersectional Conference 2020: Incarceration and Society

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 4:19pm
University of Coimbra
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

In his book The Racial Contract (1997), the African American philosopher Charles W. Mills describes how western white supremacy has created a system of unnamed power that carries with it a social and political structure conducive to the full exercise of a racialised State and judicial system, capable of determining, and legislating over, the life and death of the bodies it subjugates. It is in this sense that Whiteness, as an established power system, can determine, in those countries with a history of slavery and colonialism, the hegemony of ‘Whites’ in all spheres of society, in contrast to the imposition of a marginalised and lesser social place upon the racialised bodies of ‘Blacks’, ‘Latinos’ and other non-white minorities.
